Shipping List Analysis for July 25, 2007

Filed under: Pull List Analysis — David Uzumeri @ 10:03 pm

5367_400×600.jpgAll Star Batman & Robin, the Boy Wonder #6
Frank Miller & Jim Lee

The preview is up at Newsarama, and apparently Frank Miller has gotten DC to allow him to say “shit” in this book. This is a trainwreck, but it’s a trainwreck perpetrated by a charismatic and hilarious but very drunk train. I eagerly await every issue of this book because I know that, if nothing else, I will laugh my ass off with (not at) the book at the over-the-top gleeful mischief that permeates this. Pure guilty fun.

7290_400×600.jpgBatman #666
Grant Morrison & Andy Kubert

The other Batman book this week comes from, well, the other really late Batman team. As a matter of fact, last time ASBAR and Batman came out, it was the same week. That was mid-May. This book has serious schedule problems considering this is ostensibly DC’s monthly Batman title. So how are they getting around this? Apparently, rotating artists and an accelerated publishing schedule for the next few months, possibly leading into November’s “Resurrection of Ra’s Al Ghul” event. In any case, this is likely to continue Morrison’s bizarre and whimsical love-it-or-hate-it Batman run with a special issue celebrating the number of the beast focusing on Batman’s put-upon and likely doomed son, Damian. Apparently it’s the future, he’s Batman and he’s going to fight the devil. It certainly sounds good on paper.

7641_400×600.jpgGreen Lantern Corps #14
Dave Gibbons & Patrick Gleason w/Angel Unzueta

Kind of but not really continuing from two weeks ago’s Green Lantern #21, this is more of the very well-received Sinestro Corps storyline.

7659_400×600.jpgWonder Woman #11
J. Torres & Paco Diaz

More of Amazons Attack, the event gift that keeps on taking. It’s been noted that this crossover seems to somehow decreasesales of its tie-in books, so add on a two-issue fill-in stint by a C-list team and it’s no wonder people say DC has no idea how to coordinate their titles. New team of Gail Simone & Terry Dodson come on with #13, with goddamned monkey assassins.

ironfist.jpgImmortal Iron Fist #7
Ed Brubaker, Matt Fraction & Travel Foreman w/Leandro Fernandez & Khari Evans

This done-in-one centers on the Pirate Queen of Pinghai Bay, a character glimpsed in earlier issues of this title as Brubaker and Fraction continue their truly inspired reworking of seminal B-lister Iron Fist into a formidable legacy hero. This issue comes with a trio of talented guest artists and is likely to be one of the surest bets of the week.

mightyaveng.jpgMighty Avengers #4
Brian Michael Bendis & Frank Cho

This much-delayed book will finally get to continue its Ultron plotline and, maybe, one day catch up to its sister title and the Skrull plotline that’s capturing the hearts of a nerd nation. This title’s had a lot of critics, largely because of Bendis’s new thought balloons which many readers find break up the dialogue and action and just unnecessarily distract, while some love the device and think it’s a great new use for it. Personally, I like it.

wolv055.jpgWolverine #55
Jeph Loeb & Simone Bianchi

The advance hype for this issue is pretty strong, complete with spoiler alternate cover. Whatever happens, it seems pretty bad things are in store for Sabretooth, as well as any readers who try to digest this tripe. Utterly gorgeous art has, for five issues now, been obscured with some of the most stilted and banal dialogue in recent comics history, and forced to portray sequences of events that are so fundamentally nonsensical the writer has basically admitted the purpose of the book was to fit as many guest-stars in as possible.
